North Korea releases two US citizens
November 9 , 2014
Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller, the two American citizens jailed in North Korea, are back in the US.
After their release from jail, they flew back to Washington state, accompanied by the US director of national intelligence James Clapper.
Bae, a missionary, was arrested in 2012; Miller was arrested this year in April.
US president Barack Obama said it was a “wonderful day” for the pair and their families. He praised Clapper for “doing a great job on what was obviously a challenging mission”.
